Jim, I am so very sorry about your loss. You mentioned your dog often in your posts and the two of you seemed to go everywhere together. Dogs truly can be our very best friends and it must hurt something awful to lose your fur face pal - and so suddenly too. When I think about losing my own dog, my heart simply rejects such a thought. My heart goes out to you.

Very sorry to hear this story of your dog's injury and death. Sudden deaths seem harder somehow.

Jim, sorry for your loss. I remember when my dog died; how devastated I was. It took a long time to stop missing him so much.

Wow, they are really getting some kind of winter weather in areas of Montana/Idaho/Wyoming. Maybe I won't complain quite so much about my weather here after all.

The dog’s walked, house cleaned and the pumpkins and tomatoes watered already. The mornings have been great to be outside, so I’m sitting near the pool finishing my yaupon tea with the dog and cat nearby. The Southeast is having above normal temps this week, but the cooler mornings help.

That sure is a relaxing picture. I'd like to be sitting there enjoying a cup of coffee this morning. The heat and humidity has already cranked up today for us. But if we hang in there, Friday will bring about a 15 degree temp drop.

I noticed the last few days that our hummingbirds have really been draining the feeder. I guess they are packing on the energy for their trip to Mexico. So it looks like autumn is slowly getting here.

I'm so very sorry for your loss Jim. I know it almost kills me when any of my pals have passed on.
Your pal is now at the "Rainbow Bridge". He's running & playing with all his friends,/eating some good vittles/ patiently waiting for the day you join him.


Some years ago my beloved "Skeeter" (lab/shepherd mix) passed on. She had some arthritis problems.Medicine had helped her some. Then, one day her back just went out. The vet said there was nothing he could do to save her. She was 15.
I buried my beautiful girl under an old growth doug fir tree, above my bass pond. I'm still crying any time i think about her.
I'm sure both our pups are now playing together at the Rainbow Bridge, having a good ol' time.

Please Jim, take gentle good care of yourself, pard.

My Gus cremains are home. Beautiful simple box. He's resting on my bedroom nightstand and will join me when I pass.


The tears still come, but I am beginning to be more at peace.
